Storyline

Berkeley record store clerk Nick Brady (Jonathan Scarfe) begins to experience strange visions from an entity he calls VALIS that cause him to uproot his family and move to Los Angeles where he becomes a successful music company executive. With the help of best friend, science-fiction writer Philip K. Dick himself (Shea Whigam) and a mysterious woman named Silvia (Alanis Morissette), Nick finds himself drawn into a dangerous political-mystical conspiracy of cosmic proportions. The story is set in an alternate reality America circa 1985 under the authoritarian control of President Fremont, a Nixon-like clone (Scott Wilson). Written by Radio Free LLC

The lies....they are getting thick
21 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Look at the titles of all the 10 star reviews for this film. Notice anything.

Now look at how many other reviews those people have written. Notice anything?

Now watch this film, if you dare. Notice anything?

This is not only the worst PKD adaptation ever, but it's also one of the worst films from that year. An amateur film masquerading as a masterpiece. It was both painful and embarrassing to watch, with performances that made The Room seem nearly decent by comparison. At least The Room was hilarious. This is just sad. And made worse by all the fake reviews here.

But as always, don't take my word for it. See it! There is actually a lot to be learned by watching films THIS dreadful in terms of adaptation, acting, directing, cinematography (if you can call it that), and editing. There isn't actually a single area in which this film succeeds. Forget succeeds, there is nothing its even barely-adequate at executing. Maybe the food was good on set? That would at least be something to praise it for.

Go take a look at the trailer. They couldn't even make the trailer look interesting? You almost have to try, and try hard...to make a film turn out this bad.

See it. Learn from it.
